My Yellow Pencil Watercolour 38cm x 28.5cm Saunders Waterford 425gsm Hot Press
I mentioned yesterday how a painting of my grandson (also in his twos) wasn't behaving. Thank goodness for top quality paper and Daniel Smith Watercolor ground. There was so much to like with little Tommys portrait that I couldn't give up defeated so after leaving it overnight with the troubled spots covered in the watercolor ground I was able to paint afresh the next day.Sure the texture of this one is a bit roughed up but it just looks like the Saunders Waterford Hot Press paper is now Cold Press and just that bit textured. My reference also from Christmas was so full of background and other family members it was a great exercise in learning how to leave lots out. His Mum and Dad are going to hang this on their walls so that really pleases me. By the way I have already framed little Tillys portrait and have it hanging in my sitting room.
